it pours in more ways than one - The life of Wagster
A tale of a city boy in the country.
it pours in more ways than one

-Some folks say, when it rains it pours, others say, feast or famine.  I say, I'll take more rain and more tools.  After I got that drill/driver two weeks ago, I got some new tool boxes and thought I wouldn't be buying any more tools soon.  However, on the way back from Deere Isle I stopped at a couple of antique shops and found a 1931-32 Stanley Bailey-style #4 smoothing plane with a relatively uncommon "Sweetheart" iron.  The plane is in perfect working order and was only $32 (compare to a new Lie-Nielsen #4 ~$350).  I got it all tuned up and ready to go, only to spend the last two days chiseling spline pockets.  I'll have to wait a little longer to try it out I guess.

-We got a nice soaking rain today, just enough to keep the Sheepscot river high enough to have some nice whitewater.  I was thinking about paddling it today, but time has gotten away from me as it always does.

-Sounds like we'll be going a bit of raising down in Boothbay next week and then heading down to Maryland and Massachusetts the first couple weeks of October.  It also sounds like we might have two November raisings.  Get your stocking cap and sheepskin-lined gloves ready!

-Is anyone sick of politics?  Throw away your TV.
